1-1/2 cups brown sugar

12 ounces butterscotch chips
1 tablespoon margarine
1 tablespoon water

Melt Karo syrup, butterscotch chips, margarine and water over low heat or in microwave. Add peanuts and spread over baked crust. Spread to the edges. Bake for five minutes. When you remove the bars, run a knife around the edges of the pan to loosen the bars. Completely cool before cutting into bars.
